I was up this morning aching all over from my workout yesterday evening. It’s been like this for the past few workouts as I’ve been hitting weights that I’ve never thought I could do before.
In the evening after work, I did my groceries and picked up some fish, chicken, pork, veggies, and fruit. I got home, started marinating the chicken and pork, then went out to do my planned HIIT run. This time, I did not push as hard as I did last Wednesday, but kept my pace at a more comfortable level in my work intervals. Hopefully, my legs will not be as thrashed as they were last week that I got stuck on my squats the next day.
After dinner, I grilled the chicken and pork and prepared my meals for the next day. This batch of protein should keep me happy for the next few days. I also tried out some foam rolling exercises which should help with relieving the aches I now have throughout my legs and upper body.
Two weeks ago, I pre-ordered Tom Venuto’s The Body Fat Solution from Amazon.com. Since shipping to the Philippines is very expensive, I took the opportunity to order a few more fitness books to read. Among the books that I ordered was Nate Green’s recently released book, Built for Show.
I found Nate through T-Nation and recently subscribed to his blog as I like his writing style. I commented on one of his funny posts and told him that I was looking forward to reading his book (which I just received this past weekent). I was surprised when he emailed me back thanking me for my comment. I was in for a shock this morning when I got another email from him containing just a link to one of his blog posts. Since then, I noticed visits to my blog just skyrocketed! This is serious stuff, and I really will be motivated to train hard and stay my course through this and future missions. Thanks a lot Nate for the massive encouragement!
Little by little I’ve also been reading the latest installment of Adam Waters‘ RTP system (Module 4). With all this encouragement and great information coming from all directions, how can I not succeed?
Eat right, train hard, and expect success!
